    If anybody, the Russians can claim copyright. After all, ATV is based on the charlie-I class submarine. Its cross-section is available on the net. Both seem to have lifted it from there, you dumbos!!!!

    Actually both pictures are rip offs of an American original.

    The interior layout shown is copied from this image of the US Virginia class submarine.

    http://www.defenseindustrydaily.com/images/SHIP_SSN_Virginia_Class_Cutaway_lg.jpg

    The India Today version simply tilted the angle but you can see that all the interiors are lifted straight from the picture of the Virginia class submarine. The Times of India didn't even bother tilting the angle and even copied the rudder layout of the Virginia class. Even the people sitting in the crew quarters are in the same damn places as the Virginia class depiction!

    We don't need India's enemies to run down Indian efforts and anything desi designed and developed, our good journalists are fantastic throwing cold water and glorifying foreign products.

    Such scumbags should be sent to the porkis and the chinks or just second them to the CPI to write for Prakash Karat.

    Idiots all around. Why are there so many small tubes jussting from the sub. Morons do not know how to do sensor integration or what? All that drag makes me cry.

    But then drag would be relevant if this submarine was to be an actual attack or SSBN. It isn't. Just another toy like Agni missile (how many Agni do we have operationsal, two?) to delude ourselves we have nuclear ability.

    To anonymous at 9:54 AM.
    Its obvious you know nothing about drag forces. Drag forces start affecting the motion of a body moving through a fluid medium only when the body moves at a velocity greater than a particular limit. That velocity depends upon the frontal cross section of the body. If the drag forces produced by all those tubes jutting out of the submarine's bridge are to really affect its motion in water then the submarine has to move at speeds in excess of 200 knots. That will never happen unless a giant sea monster gives an almighty kick to the ATV's butt or unless the ATV is made to do water skiing by tying it to at least 10 C-17 III Globemasters.

    Its official now: The ATV will be commissioned on the 26th of July which happens to be Kargil Vijay Divas.
    By doing so we are only going to diminish ourselves in the eyes of the world. The significance of 26 July will not be lost on the world media. Moreover our illustrious DDM will not lose an opportunity to give a Pakistani angle to the event by claiming that the launch date was intended to send a subtle message to Pakistan. The Pakistanis will latch on to every word written by our DDM and will start churning out news stories and talk shows about this new danger to Pakistan and morons like Zaid Hamid will appear on those shows and declare that this new submarine was built by the Hindus,Zionists and Crusaders to threaten Pakistan and seize its nukes bcoz otherwise Pakistan will soon become the next superpower of the world. Some Pakistani general will give a press conference and declare that this new submarine will start an arms race in South Asia and also pompously declare that Pakistan will not remain quiet. On the whole, the Pakistanis will keep flattering themselves by assuming that this submarine was built to counter Pak Navy as if we needed nuke submarines to take on the Pak navy.
    Much worse by taking the cue from our DDM and Pak media, the world media will once again start lamenting on the tensions in S.Asia and how both India & Pak have nuclear weapons and how they are arch rivals as if India and Pak were equals. All this will make sure that the historic launch of the ATV will be seen in the subcontinental context and through the prism of the Indo-Pak hostilities.
    A country like India that aspires to be a world power should first learn to act like one. We must show that we are capable of rising above the trivialities in S.Asia and assume a regional role. If so what we should have done is chosen another convenient date like say August 1 and launch the ATV on that day and declare that henceforth August 1 of every year will be observed by our Navy as the Submariner's Day to commemorate the launching of the first indigenously built nuclear submarine. That is how a rising power should behave. We should choose to move out of S. Asia and project ourselves in a larger role. I personally consider it (with all respect to our brave Jawans who gave their lives for our success in Kargil) an ill-thought out and absurd decision to launch the ATV on Vijay Divas.

    may i kindly remind you that the author of that article is the same person who refuses to believe that Brahmos is operational on two frontline destroyers of IN…he still thinks that Brahmos is a concept and tech demonstrator…btw, u can see the kind of pervert he is, when he puts up a pic of cameltoe at the end of the article,to attract hits to his site.

    Col Ajai has just dropped a bombshell.
    "there's no such thing as an ATV. There is, therefore, no launch. Mrs Manmohan Singh will be breaking a coconut over an imaginary nuclear submarine"
